Lead singer of Athens, Georgia's Of Montreal, Kevin Barnes, released this statement on their myspace today regarding the leak of their upcoming release, False Priest:
"False Priest - Please Wait!
Please do not listen to the leaked version of False Priest. Some “enthusiastic” person allowed people to listen over Skype to an advance copy he somehow got his hands on, and then one of those people recorded the live stream, and that is the version of the album that has “leaked”. It would be unfortunate enough for False Priest to leak this early, but it’s made even worse by the fact that its an extremely low rez version that is now floating around. Please be patient and wait a couple more months, I promise you it will be worth it.
P.S. This is not a call for someone to leak a better quality version of the album, just thought I should add that:-)"
And I was just talking about Gaslight Anthem's leak recently too! Totally sucks when a good band's album gets leaked way too soon.
